    The La Estancia Restaurant is owned by German descendants of who knows who. It serves mostly local food though. That means that the steaks were excellent. It is an open air venue.

Trinidad Transportation

  • Gateway to Jungle Tours

    The flight from La Paz to Trinidad does not take long, i.e., 37 minutes to Cochabamba, change planes, and then 30 minutes to Trinidad. Lloyd Aero Boliviano (LAB) is a modern well run airline. It costs $121 for the roundtrip on LAB. There are old aircraft parked at the Trinidad airport. It looked like they were no longer used.

    There are big buses leaving Trinidad : take them, and avoid the small ones, if you want to travel with a bit more confort and without being treated like a sucker by the companies (selling more places than there actually are, giving you a wrong departure time...)Il y a des gros bus qui partent depuis Trinidad. Dans la mesure du possible, prenez les...

    It's the main transportation mean, so it's a real local custom here....

Trinidad Off The Beaten Path

  • Loma Chuchini - Another Ancient Moxos...

    On my second trip in 2004, the boat from the Reina de Enin was late to pick us up, so the driver took us another 5 km down the dirt road to Loma Chuchini. It is another ancient Moxos mound that is now owned by the Hinojosa family and is a private ecological preserve and zoo. However, the most interesting thing is their one room museum of artifacts...

  • Loma Suarez - Moxos Mound

    To get to the Reina de Enin, you travel about 10 km on a dirt road from the Trinidad airport to Loma Suarez. It is now a Bolivian Naval School on the bank of the Ibare River. Before it was the local headquarters of the Suarez rubber empire. Long before that, it was one of the mysterious mounds of the Moxos civilization. On my first trip, I did not...

Trinidad Sports & Outdoors

  • Piranha Fishing on the Mamore River

    Actually the fishing was in a lagoon off the Mamore River. During the rainy season, the river is high and swift. Piranhas like slower water. There were four of us in the boat counting the guide, Mitchell. The fishing was actually pretty good. I would have used a smaller hook but maybe they can bite through a smaller guage hook. Mitchell caught all...

  • Piranha Fishing on the Ibare River

    On my second riverboat trip, we went piranha fishing twice. Piranhas like slower water. The first time was in a lagoon off the Mamore River (which was running fast and high since it was the rainy season). The second time was on the Ibare River, a smaller river with lots of vegetation growing in it. You fish just the opposite as for most fish. You...

    Pink Freshwater Dolphin

    by AlbuqRay Written Nov 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Mamore and Ibare Rivers have pink freshwater dolphins (the Mamore is a tributary of the Amazon River). You see them relatively often but they do not jump like saltwater dolphins, so they are extremely hard to photograph. I lucked out on this photo but it was from a long distance. It was where the Ibare River runs into the Mamore River and a whole pod was playing there.
